Master Bath: Details

I still haven't taken the close up photos that I WANTED to, which would have required an all night scrubbing marathon of the master bathroom. And I'm still feeling pokey from my tango (salsa? mambo?) with food poisoning, so that...

The Master Bath (Almost) After Photos

These are NOT quite after, because there are some details still missing. But it came to my attention that I had not posted any photos of the master bathroom since we've moved upstairs. Probably because Miss Grace showed up early...

Three Years (and 11 Days) of Progress

Believe it  or not, it's now been three years since we closed on the house.  In fact, it's eleven days past the exact anniversary--whoops!  I guess time flies when you're having fun so much going on.No, actually it really has...

Installing a Door Jamb Extension, Pt. 1

Yesterday we finally broke through the 'baby barrier' and--believe it or not--did some work on the house.  With power tools.  And wood.  And a tape measure.  No, seriously.It wasn't a full blown project, just part of one.  We're definitely pacing...

Punchlist Progress: Bathroom Medicine Cabinet

Slowly but surely, we'll be taking care of everything on our second floor punchlist. Last night we took care of the first item: installing the master bathroom's medicine cabinet....

Second Floor Punchlist

For every construction job, after "occupancy" occurs, there are always things that need to be finished. Thus, the final "punchlist." Our own project is no exception...we still have things to finish upstairs even after we've moved in. The difference here...

Toolfest!

Working on the final trim installation was doubly satisfying because we are doing some of the things necessary before we (finally!) move in upstairs AND we also used just about every tool in our arsenal…and a few rentals, too! First,...

Rube Goldberg's Guide to Home Improvement

As I've been mentioning recently, the remaining tasks in the master bath are now just some cabinetry and trim. Well, today I put in the very last pieces of the beadboard wainscoat. Let me be the first to say that...

Best Color to Paint the Radiator?

So, last Thursday we posted some new photos of the master bathroom--not completely done, but very close! After living with it for all of two days I've got a nagging question so J suggested I just post it for advice....

Master Bathroom Progress Eye Candy

OK, after a great visit from Paul's team during the past few days, we have some fun new photos to share. The fixtures and the remaining shower glass have now been installed. While there's still some grout and woodwork that...

Two Long Years

Saturday marked the two year anniversary of our purchase of this house. Like the first year, we didn't accomplish as much as we would have hoped. Reviewing our first year anniversary write-up, we hit about half of what we said...

We Have a Bathroom Door!

As part of our work this weekend trimming out the master bathroom, we also re-hung our bathroom door. When we realized that we were going to be forced to tear out the plaster and lathe walls upstairs, we took some...

More progress on the master bathroom, we've now got much of the wainscoat trimmed out with a first finish coat of paint....

Bathroom Wainscoat Pt. 2 - Hanging Beadboard & Cabinet Backing

After priming and cutting our beadboard sheets, we started the installation in the upstairs bathroom. The beadboard will be forming a 36" wainscoat around the whole bathroom, trimmed with a fairly simple craftsman-style pattern, mounted on the face of the...

Bathroom Wainscoat Pt. 1 - Beadboard Prep

After deciding to go with high quality panel sheets for the wainscoat in our master bathroom, we picked up the sheets from Lee Lumber. For starters, J and I spent a few evenings priming everything....

The Durock is in the House!

Paul's team has made a lot more progress in the master bathroom. The Durock backing for the shower walls and the tile floor are in place. What is Durock? Good question that the folks at US Gypsum answer here. The...

Things are Taking Shape

It's so pleasing to admire professional work with Paul's team onsite. Especially when things have been in disarray for a while. Even small things like the well-built frame of a future medicine cabinet can bring a lot of hope....
